Every Friday night from 9 p.m.-midnight, poetry becomes Spoken Word Groove. At this venue, free verse and hip-hop meld into dynamic performance, complete with a backup band. Performances runs the gamut from timid first-timers nervously clutching the microphone to spoken-word powerhouse performers such as M.K. Stallings and Zaire Imani. The crowd is supportive either way, often shouting encouragement to the shy or tossing out a "Hallelujah!" or "Speak it!" to especially strong verse. At Spoken Word Groove, poetry isn't just for academics; rather, it becomes what it should be -- moving, humorous, accessible to everyone and performed for standing-room-only crowds.

Pamela Brown is a poet that loves to hear and be excited about other people words that help the mike penetrate the soul...

I hope to get the opportunity to attend  this Friday night and sort of soak it all in. Looking forward to it, and certainly being a participant sometime soon. Thank you, and Happy New Year

I attended The Spoken Word Venue before at Legacy Books & Cafe and I really enjoyed the ambiance... That was last year in 2009, I'm back in The St. Louis area and I am seeking a Venue that supports Spoken Word Poetry in St. Louis...

I have submitted my contact information, I would like to get involved with The Spoken Word Movement and would appreciate some feedback detailing some of the specifics... Peace 'n Blessings!
